Sainsbury's Is Selling Pigs In Blankets Flavour Mayonnaise

Christmas is on the horizon and all the supermarkets are starting to release their festive offerings. There's melting chocolate snowmen, Pringles advent calendars and a Sainsbury's special - pigs in blankets flavoured mayonnaise.

At the moment the unusual condiment is only available at selected stores, but we're informed that it will be rolled out online and available nationwide from 25 October.

It was first spotted in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, where someone explained that it was on sale for 95p.

It seems people aren't too sure what to make of the new sauce.

One person wrote: "And I thought 2020 couldn't get any worse."

While another added: "I know we love a pig in blanket but not sure about this."

But not everyone has dismissed it before giving it a go. A much more enthusiastic Facebooker replied: "Game changer."

Getting into the spirit of things, another person agreed, writing: "It's all going on in Sainsbury's."

If that doesn't sound like the one for you, though - why not take a look at the new M&S fish and chip scraps?

If you're not aware of 'scraps', you can get them from most chippies with your food - but now Marks & Spencer is flogging them separately.

It's fair to say that the move has sparked some confusion and ridicule. Some folks reckon that this is an insult to the hardy northern folk that have loved and kept scraps dear to their hearts for years.

Either way, they are being sold in 80g pots and will set you back just £1.05.

Also known around the country by names like gribbles, dubs and scrumps - although those people are wrong - they are traditionally just the bits of batter that come off the fish and fall into the fryer while it is being prepared.

The news was broken on Instagram and Twitter by food account Well This Is New, who wrote: "Chip Shop Scraps! At M&S." There was even a drooling emoji to prove how into it the folks behind the account are.

However, not everyone is so keen. One person commented: "As a Yorkshire woman I am conflicted. I love scraps and promote their consumption.

"But they should be free, and wrapped in paper!"

Another person joked: "Scraps aren't scraps if you have to pay for them. And the pot should be half full of grease."
